There was a post from some guy onhere about his 1st ever bike so I thought I'd post a pic of mine, then I thought I'd retrace my mtb steps so here goes
1990 Ridgeback 601LX. bent forks/ stem within the first 9 months of it's life but it got me round the yorkshire moors and the peak district on a number of rides.
which led to a spangly new Scott Windriver (91), deore lx and free for a year courtesey of a local shop sponsorship scheme! Kept this for four years and rode it almost everyday. Upgrades included SPD's and rockshox mag 21's, remember those?
Followed by a Proflex beast. The naff maguras were ditched in favour of XT v-brakes and the gripshift for xt shifters. Raced for 3 years before a few years off regular mountain biking
returning to bikes my Orange zero was a peach and spent many weekends at trail centres chasing full sus bikes before I finally relented
and got my meta 5.5 which is just awesome. Three days in coed y brenin told me just what i'd been missing out on!
so what's your history?
